Online Registration for students entering Kindergarten in Fall 2021 starts on Monday, March 8th and runs through Friday, March 12th. There will be no in-person registration at this time.
Kindergarten is mandatory in Maryland, so if your child turns 5 by September 1, 2021, you must register your child for the 2021-22 school year. Parents or guardians are to register students at the school serving the address where the child’s parent or guardian resides. Information on neighborhood schools can be found through School Locator or by calling the Public Information Office at 410-313-6682.

Resources From HCPSS
The HCPSS Getting Ready for Kindergarten page, which includes resources to support kindergarten readiness and online registration, will be updated this winter with additional information and resources for families. This will include the information that is typically covered in the Road to Kindergarten live event, which includes information about kindergarten readiness, the kindergarten program, and registering children for school. We also encourage families to visit our Grade K Family and Community Resources page for more information about the kindergarten instructional program and ways families can support their children at home. The Prekindergarten Family and Community Resources page also contains resources for families and providers for children currently in their prekindergarten year. *Please note that SJLES does not have a PK program.
